Safety and Health
General Requirements. Design occupied buildings with maximum
consideration given to safety and health. Refer to Title 29, CFR, Part 1910,
Occupational Safety and Health Standards, with particular emphasis on noise
control for hearing conservation and safety standards for toxic and hazardous
substances. Provide suitable facilities for quick drenching or flushing of
the eyes and body within the work area for immediate emergency use where any
person may be exposed to injurious corrosive materials.
Human Engineering. Consider safety in relation to operational
function, accessibility for maintenance and repair, physical layout for
traffic, interface with other equipment, and environmental factors, such as
lighting, temperature, and humidity. Refer to MIL-STD-882, System Safety
Program Requirements, and MIL-STD-1472, Human Engineering Design Criteria for
Military Systems, Equipment, and Facilities.
Electromagnetic Hazards. Many facilities discussed herein contain
equipment that radiates an electromagnetic signal. Consider the effect of
(HERF) when planning and designing facilities housing EMR emitting equipment.
Provide safety measures to eliminate or reduce hazardous conditions. Refer to
